Italy / Campania / Fiano Methodo Clasico

White Bubbles of Fiano

"I think the most interesting Italian sparkling wines are generally those that don't try to copy Champagne. Picariello’s sparkling is one of my new favorites; a classic method (aka Champagne Method) sparkling wine made with Fiano. Base wine is from Summonte, the site closer to Ciro’s home, and could be Fiano di Avellino. The grapes are picked a little early for acidity. In my opinion the yeasty flavors that come from this winemaking method combine very well with the gunflint quality of Fiano. Both delicious and very distinctive wine. Very limited." -Oliver McCrum
